Life of fighters after retirement

Mike Glover served in the US Army for 18 years, and he was also a government contractor for OGA. Glover had an adventurous life as an army officer. Hence, it was difficult for Glover to go back to the four walls of his house. While in service, he became an expert in counter-terrorism, security, and crisis management operations. In the later stages of his life, he became the founder of Fieldcraft Survivor. There is no better man than him for Rogan to speak about retirement after a remarkable professional life. In the show, Glover says that for someone who has done so much in life, if they plan to sit idle after their retirement, they might die.

As a response to Glover’s remarks, Rogan said in JRE “I think there is definitely this thing that happens to a lot of guys when they get out of the military. It happens to a lot of guys who do anything where you have a tight-knit group of people that are like-minded. They are trying to do the same thing as you.”

The UFC color commentator further added, “This issue is there with the fighters too, where they retire from fighting and they are not in the gym anymore. They are not training with guys anymore. You know you are not traveling together all the time and supporting each other. They lose their souls. Many of them start drinking, they get into drugs. They need something to give themself some feeling.”
